[rpd] AFRINIC PDWG Co-Chair Selection Candidates Matrix

Fri May 20 09:53:35 UTC 2022

Hi Ish,


While the number of emails is significative, I was not looking into just counting them. Also, you will need to point how many each year, if they are related to specific proposals, and so many variables, that, as you very well said “Do read these emails …”.


Also, to be fair, we will need to look into participation in the PPMs, which is not so easy as just reading the emails in the RPD archive, as you will need to find and look at the videos of 3–4-year meetings. It may happen also (same as for emails) that the participation was many years ago, and recently the candidates have participated less, so they are not necessarily up-to-date with the PDWG situation.


Thinks that we should also know, is if they have participated in the Board, Appeal Committee, or other similar bodies (not just in this RIR).


I think when you’re a candidate, you really should invest some time in develop a specific set of information for the position you are aiming for (in support for your candidacy).


What I think we should be looking for, in summary, is *experience* in the PDP and related activites. For example, “what you do on your daily job that is related to Number Resources?”.


Last bit, I don’t think having been or not a co-author of proposals is that much important, and in fact, I believe none of the candidates have been (or again, they didn’t mention it, unless I missed it).
